Re-energise Your Work Culture

If you’re thinking about how to re-energise your work culture and increase productivity amongst the team. Before resorting to temporary morale boosters, let’s look at the business HouseRules and see how applicable they are in the present work environment.

Is your team operating at full capacity?

An unmotivated team is a productivity killer. Between wasted time, constantly having to micro-manage and misaligned incentives, vital energy gets depleted. You soon realise that the current rules neither serve nor are fully implemented. 
Experience has proven lacklustre energy typically points to misalignment between policies and realities on the ground.  Currently, with increasing prices, financial authorised limits within a business can result in missed discounts and unavailable stock items.  However, when policies intended to protect the business end up hindering talent, motivation suffers.

The Balance Between Clarity and Autonomy

The key to an inspired work culture is balancing clarity of expectations with autonomy for teams to problem-solve. Employees crave understanding where their skills can drive impact while also exercising creativity.
Whereas, sticking to outdated guidelines can limit options and give rise to conflicting responsibilities. Individuals start to base their actions on personal belief, by taking matters into their own hands.  Assuming the role of the one in charge and making”executive decisions”, the entire set-up becomes obscure. Over time, workers feel constrained rather than empowered to put their stamp on quality outcomes. Instead of taking the lead with confidence, they sit back and wait for direction.

Balance Autonomy and Accountability with HouseRules

Passionate individuals craving success want clarity on expectations and knowing what’s needed to achieve desired results. The HouseRules of your business are the guides to set the limits to what an individual is permitted to do in your business.
Outdated policies however confuse responsibilities or are restrictive when that is no longer the intention. Once individuals understand the basics, outdated policies limit their ability to apply what they’ve learnt or put their  “own stamp on it”.

Rather than let frustration fester, collaborate on targeted fixes:

  • A Dust Off audit for the policy that you suspect may no longer fit today’s working environment.
  • Spotlight priority areas needing refreshed rules to nourish the internal community
  • Co-create updated HouseRules that interweave individual growth with organisational success.
